ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Anchorage police have released the name of the man critically injured last week in a suspected moose attack.

Police say the injured man is 50-year-old Fred Mayac.

Anchorage television station KTUU (https://bit.ly/1RYopgw) reports Department of Fish and Game officials are waiting to interview him until his condition improves.

Mayac was found June 8 bleeding from multiple wounds near Campbell Creek Estuary Park.

Police at first suspected he had been stabbed but medics said the nature of his injuries indicated he had been attacked by a bear.

But state wildlife officials found no indication of a bear mauling. They say it’s more likely Mayac was attacked by a moose.
